    The camera app settings are going to depend on the type of light you are flying in to capture video or photos. Depends on bright conditions or overcast days . Where you fly in the early morming. Later in the evening or mid day. Start out with most setting to auto and at the lower fps and work up and play with it at thos settings.
    Dynamic home point if set the Phantom will consider your tablet or phones GPS and up date where it is every few seconds. It follows its location and lock into it as the home position. Good for on a boat or moving locations while you are hikeing air biking and if it need to go home is lands close to the phone/tablet. Useful at times.

    If you're using litchi do you have to set the video settings in the Go app first and are these retained??

    Also just recently downloaded litchi. What what I see looks good. Now we just need some experienced pilots to tell us the best settings all the way through.

    This may or may not be the proper place for this question... Is the Litchi app compatible with my iPhone 6S Plus and P2V+ V3?

    I recommend you check out (and join) the Litchi Facebook group as there is a lot of information there. Also the folks at Litchi are great with responding to questions and issues users are dealing with.

    Another setting you might consider is the FPV boost - and perhaps raising the default settings on that. The risk of hardware overheating would be reduced since it's winter.

    Unless, of course, you live in Chile.

    70 degrees here in Scottsdale. Thanks a lot Cardinals for the most embarrassing game this month. Sorry... venting. Does FPV boost Really work that well?
